The trees are restless
the river folds the waves like silk
the fisherman casts his line
note: Our club, Rotary Club of North Napa, distributed dictionaries to third graders of four elementary schools yesterday. Rotary clubs in our district from Napa & Sonoma to Crescent City, California provide dictionaries to all the third graders.
Two contrary thoughts enter her mind
Two rivers meeting from opposite directions
Birds chattering, insects chittering
The swan spreads her wings
Flawless like unfurling frond
Rises to meet the sky
A little girl, speechless.
The magnitude of oneself,
the hallucinating voices
can overwhelm an altar
Like grinding of gravel into sand
locust deluded by summer
start eating trees
birds lost their songs,
now mere shadows in the horizon
Then you came with your guitar
music and prayers bounce on the walls
repetitional phrases of longing,
a chant of a pilgrim returning
for the first time.
“Is it only in childhood that we are capable of taking in the whole world?”
-Gregory Maguire, Hiddensee
The wind circles in spurts.
My early afternoon walk to the river
Brown leaves and empty chair.
note: I’m reading a book: The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair. My doodling about responsibility.
